Food riots

A map of where there have been food riots.

Today, the flash point is Egypt (where the cost of food has doubled in a year) but last year Italians marched in protest at the cost of pasta and Moroccans over the price of bread.

The more recent protests include riots in Haiti last week that killed four people; violent protests in Ivory Coast; price riots in Cameroon in February that left 40 people dead; demonstrations in Mauritania, Mozambique, Senegal, Uzbekistan, Yemen, Bolivia and Indonesia.

We've plotted them... but if we have missed any out, please let us know.
